Arts: Green Living

But, the thought of a life without plastic seems to be grueling, as there is no other cheaper way to get out of the mire. Also, discarding plastic waste in open is extra perilous for the environment. However, what else can be done to discard the side effects of plastic garbage? Why not join the kiddish annals once again. The kids at the Visual Arts Center of Richmond have shown us the way to a cleaner environment. In today’s world, the job that we are best at handling is spoiling the sacred, serene environment.

Josh George Art Blog. Josh George. James Abbott McNeill Whistler. James Abbott McNeill Whistler (July 11, 1834 – July 17, 1903) was an American-born, British-based artist active during the American Gilded Age.

James Abbott McNeill Whistler

Averse to sentimentality and moral allusion in painting, he was a leading proponent of the credo, "art for art's sake". His famous signature for his paintings was in the shape of a stylized butterfly possessing a long stinger for a tail.[1] The symbol was apt, for it combined both aspects of his personality—his art was characterized by a subtle delicacy, while his public persona was combative. Finding a parallel between painting and music, Whistler entitled many of his paintings "arrangements", "harmonies", and "nocturnes", emphasizing the primacy of tonal harmony.[2] His most famous painting is Whistler's Mother (1871), the revered and oft parodied portrait of motherhood.

Whistler influenced the art world and the broader culture of his time with his artistic theories and his friendships with leading artists and writers.[3] Early life[edit]


Gallery. Baroque. The popularity and success of the Baroque style was encouraged by the Roman Catholic Church, which had decided at the time of the Council of Trent, in response to the Protestant Reformation, that the arts should communicate religious themes in direct and emotional involvement.[2] The aristocracy also saw the dramatic style of Baroque architecture and art as a means of impressing visitors and expressing triumph, power and control.


Baroque palaces are built around an entrance of courts, grand staircases and reception rooms of sequentially increasing opulence. Etymology[edit] In informal usage, the word baroque can simply mean that something is "elaborate", with many details, without reference to the Baroque styles of the 17th and 18th centuries. The word "Baroque", like most periodic or stylistic designations, was invented by later critics rather than practitioners of the arts in the 17th and early 18th centuries.
